I wasn't worried about the death thing. I'm a damn good driver. But if caught at anywhere near the limits of this car's capabilities... it would mean an automatic trip to jail. As a ship captain, this could have a severe negative impact on my professional licenses. So the car had to go. And here comes the short bus.

God gave me two warnings that could have been disastrous , so i took his advice & got rid of it.

After probably 15hrs of taping, scuffing and wiping I finally got to blow some paint on this thing last night. NOT a pro job...but hey, its a short bus. I think it turned out OK.

But...I'm no flamer. Strait as can be.

Paint done. Well, it might need a green stripe along the white top.
